Government of Canada launches fund to better protect Canadian communities against natural disasters
Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities launched the Government of Canada’s Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund (DMAF) - a national program that will invest $ 2 billion to help communities adapt to the impacts of climate change and protect against future natural disasters.  Climate change is having a dramatic impact on Canadian communities from coast to coast to coast: floods, wildfires, and winter storms are getting worse... and more frequent. By planning for future extreme weather events, communities can lessen the need to rebuild – they can get their communities and quality of life back to normal faster.  The Disaster Mitigation and Adaptation Fund is available to communities across Canada. It’s a merit-based fund, meaning that communities will submit their large-scale infrastructure projects directly into Infrastructure Canada for consideration.
